IGWE SNEAKERS SUSTAINABLE PARIS SHOES RECYCABLE

ABOUT US

Our production is clean, our work methods are clever, our designs are experimental.
We recycle what we produce.

 

In 2018, Igwe was created in a small studio apartment in Paris. The brand finds its inspiration in urban architecture and 2-D graphics and from design to reality, it takes shape and grows into dimension.The complexity and innovation is subtle through the design, as it is minimalistic yet original.Igwe differentiates itself through its sustainable and high quality components, which are meticulously sourced throughout Southern Europe. Our sneakers are hand crafted in a traditional sneaker factory in Portugal. And our supply chain process has been carefully implemented to reduce CO2 Impact.

We recycle what we produce.

In a limited world paced by an ever growing economy, Igwe is the universe we have created for ourselves. It finds a common ground with all the others: time, space, and matter. Igwe is a symbol of our own Utopia. It evolves with us, as we experiment, create and observe. It is our brand and our motto.

Different backgrounds lead the founders to come together with the same goal: the desire to create. They challenge a consumer society through an evolving product, a sneaker. Igwe is rooted in shared ethics, values and interests and sprouts from peculiar perspectives. The founders aspire to tweak the codes of a socially and environmentally limited industry through original designs and strong interest in sustainability.

Our production is clean, our work methods are clever, our designs are experimental.

 

SUPPLY CHAIN

We built our supply chain in the simplest and most direct way.

This limits our fabrication costs but not only : it also prevents unnecessary carbon emissions linked to transportation. Our carriers are also carefully selected for their sensistivity and awereness towards envrionmental issues. 

For instance, PimPamPost is a startup based on participatory economics which is fast growing in Europe. Collaborative solutions enable individuals or businesses reduce their carbon print and favor social relationship and human contact.
